I don't mess around with plastic, i assume it needs support wherever possible so it doesn't fail on me someday... just my theory anyways.
It doesn't need a support really, its pretty sturdy on its own.
Yea, paint is all on its way for this cannon.
Thanks for the comments guys.

Cannon has been shortened for more shotgun like action and spread.

Nifty updates Frank. Let's see some action from this baby. You'll sacrifice a performance with the shorter barrel (you already knew that) but it looks cooler and you can wield it around easier.

I should get my brother to charge his vidcamera.
If he does I'll make a video.

Indeed, this one will probably will get a blow dart barrel and become a highly accurate blowdart gun.
